Maltofer Plus Folic Acid Chewable Tablet
Maltofer Plus Folic Acid Chewable Tablet is used to treat and prevent folic acid deficiency in adults and adolescents with or without mild symptoms of anemia. The tablets contain active ingredients of iron and folate as a replacement for your body deficiency. Iron is an essential mineral for blood health. About 70% of your body's iron is found in hemoglobin, the red blood cells. It keeps hemoglobin functioning normally. Folic acid aids in cell growth and maintenance. This vitamin is required for red blood cell formation.
Indicated when found
iron deficiency without anemia and iron deficiency anemia, and prevention of iron and folic acid deficiency before, during, and after pregnancy (during lactation).

Folic acid is a water-soluble synthetic vitamin that is found in supplements and fortified meals. A product, such as Appeton Essentials Folic Acid Tablet, is a synthetic form of folate, a B vitamin that occurs naturally in a variety of foods. Because the body cannot synthesise folate, it must be acquired through diet.
Fetal folate deficit leads to megaloblastic anaemia, higher risk of heart disease and cancer, and birth abnormalities in infants whose mothers were folate deficient. Both folic acid and folate are routinely used as supplements.
Although folic acid and folate are used to treat similar illnesses, their effects on the body are distinct.
1. Preventing birth abnormalities and problems during pregnancy
To prevent birth defects, particularly neural tube disorders like spina bifida and anencephaly, folic acid and folate supplements are commonly used.
2. Treatment of folate insufficiency
Folate deficiency can be caused by poor diet, surgery, pregnancy, drunkenness, and malabsorptive disorders. Deficiency can cause megaloblastic anaemia, birth abnormalities, mental disability, immune system dysfunction, and depression. It is treated with folic acid and folate supplements.
3. Brain health promotion
Low blood folate levels have been linked to impaired brain function and dementia risk. Normal but low folate levels are linked to an increased risk of dementia in older people. Combining folic acid and folate supplements with antidepressant drugs has been shown to lessen depressed symptoms.
4. Reduce Inflammation.
Inflammatory indicators such as C-reactive protein (CRP) have been proven to be reduced in populations such as PCOS women and children with epilepsy when they take folic acid or folate supplements
5. Reduced adverse effects of medicine.
In particular, methotrexate, an immunosuppressive medicine used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and cancer, may be reduced by taking folate-based supplements.
